Why am I getting a Prop 65 warning when I place an online nut/candy order?
Proposition 65 is a California law that requires a "clear and
reasonable warning" to consumers for products that contain
chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth
defects, or other reproductive harm. For details, click here.
Will we use a software system for ordering, calculating sales, and
Yes, the software system is called M2OS. It can handle both nut and
magazine orders. September training dates will be posted on the GSGLA
Will an ACH (Automatic Clearing House) system to collect funds be
due to council?
Yes, the debit will be on Dec. 4, so make sure you have sufficient
funds to cover the amount due at least seven days before this debit
date. Processing times for deposits vary; do not wait until the day
before the debit is scheduled to deposit money into your troop
account; you should be depositing promptly and frequently and
encouraging your parents to be turning over funds they/their daughter
have/has collected promptly and frequently.
If I am a Juliette, can I still participate in the fall program?
Yes. Reach out to the product program manager in your area so she
can put you in touch with the service unit fall product chair nearest you.
Will there be a fall Gift of Caring (GOC) program?
Yes, customers may make monetary GOC donations (in $5 increments).
GSGLA will then purchase nuts to be sent to the LAX USO, local food
banks through the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and Operation
Gratitude. Gift of Caring receipts are available for those that
What about the magazine portion of the sale?
All magazine orders are taken online. When a girl (with her parent)
sets up her storefront in M2OS she will be emailing family and friends
about her sale. A link in that email will direct her customers to her
store where they can choose to order nut/candy products and/or
order/renew magazine subscriptions. For magazines, the troop will
receive 20% of the total dollar amount sold. This portion of the
program is linked directly with the nut/candy portion, she doesn’t
need to do anything different when setting up her storefront, her
customers will be sent links to both shopping areas.
I understand there is a service unit bonus. What is that?
We know you have big plans to support your troops next year, but may
be a little short on funds to do that. Here’s an answer. Set a service
unit goal of at least 40 units per girl selling and organize your team
on how to achieve it. Service units who maintain the same percentage
of participating girls in 2020 that they had in 2019 AND have a
Per-Girl Average (PGA) of 40 units or higher, will receive proceeds
per number of units sold.
Example: If in 2019 a SU had 200 girls registered and 100 girls
participated, their participation is 50%. If in 2020, they have 150
girls registered and 90 participate, their participation is 60%.
